Vayudeva Varadan just finished six days of pilgrimage at the monastery. During his stay he worked on writing some short summaries to display with the books in the Mini Mela. He completed 48 summaries for books and booklets.
The Loving Ganesha summary:
“If you open this book, you will always want it with you. The book opens doors to Lord Ganesha who waits patiently to help you with every problem, every wish, big or small, inner or outer.
“Loving Ganesha is a resource you can use to learn, teach, or remember blessings, songs, prayers, festivals — even a Ganesha Puja. Loving Ganesha explains all things Ganesha in simple, touching, yet authoritative prose along with engaging illustrations.”
Bodhinatha continues with his weekly series of commentaries on The Path to Siva. In this past Sun One talk, he elucidates the four key beliefs in Hinduism, the three pillars of Sanatana Dharma and Gurudeva's three stages of faith. Primary to Hinduism is the key belief that God is within each of us. To have a well-rounded understanding and experience of Hinduism, to make spiritual progress, adhyatma vikasha, we need scripture, humility, temple worship, devotion. To fully experience God we need the guru to give the spark for meditation and deeper wisdom.
